5 Section 5 Read the text and answer the questions. Test 1 - Page 5 After over twenty years of confusing both the Irish and tourists by having distances in kilometres and speed limits in miles per hour, Ireland has just become fully metric. However, there is some confusion over the sixty thousand new speed signs and not only on the part of drivers. For example, one speed sign gave an 80kmh (50mph) speed limit down a dead-end street while another had a limit of 100kph (62mph) outside a primary school. There was a nation-wide publicity campaign, including newspaper and television advertisements and brochures posted to every house, before the new signs were introduced. The government believes this will be enough to prevent drivers misunderstanding the new 120 speed limits and trying to imitate Michael Schumacher on the motorways. Northern Ireland s transport department has also launched a campaign encouraging drivers to be extremely careful when they cross the border. The Irish police expect a certain amount of confusion, mistakes and high speeds. In spite of this, they have no intention of being lenient and giving drivers a period of time in which to get used to the new signs. Ignorance is not an excuse and any driver who exceeds the speed limits will suffer the consequences. Unfortunately for the police, half their instruments for measuring speed still register them in miles per hour and they have to convert from miles to kilometres, which makes it a little complicated for them. When Ireland first converted distances to kilometres in 1983, motorists never quite knew where they were because any new signs were in kilometres while the old ones still reported the distance in miles. However, schools have been teaching the metric system for thirty years and the Irish government is ready to change to be in line with the rest of Europe. The UK remains the only European country using the imperial system on its roads. A spokesman for the Department of Transport stated that it was improbable that Britain would change in the near future. Although the Irish have replaced one system for the purpose of greater European harmony, they are still left with another British legacy they drive on the left. Now answer these questions: 1. The passage is about the new speed limits they have introduced in Ireland. True False Doesn t say 2. Some drivers went down a dead-end street at 80kph. True False Doesn t say 3. The Irish government thinks they have adequately publicized the change and the new signs. True False Doesn t say

6 Test 1 - Page 6 4. For more than twenty years a) Ireland has converted to the metric system b) the distances on road sign were in kilometres, while speed signs were in miles c) people had to convert the speed limits into kilometres before they knew the distance they travelled d) the Irish and tourists were confused by the speed limits 5. Which is correct? a) People were informed by various means before the speed signs were changed. b) People should drive at 100kph outside primary schools. c) They are going to publicize the new road signs. d) Schumacher has misunderstood the new speed signs. 6. They a) break the law because they imitate Schumacher b) don t want Schumacher to race on the motorway c) have warned drivers coming from Northern Ireland to be careful d) will punish drivers who don t convert to kilometres 7. Some of the police a) are still using instruments which measure speed in miles b) are tolerant of people making mistakes because of the new signs c) have no intention of exceeding the speed limit d) have to convert distances into kilometres before they know the speed of a car 8. Which is correct? a) Ireland first went metric in b) Some children have been studying the metric system for thirty years. c) When Ireland first converted distances into kilometres, they did not change all the road signs immediately. d) They have been changing road signs into kilometres for thirty years. 9. The British government a) has stated that British drivers will not have to drive on the right in the near future b) has no intention of changing the system used on the roads for the moment c) will probably change the system used on the roads soon d) thinks the imperial system is better than the metric one 10. Which is correct? a) The Irish think the rest of Europe should change to be in harmony. b) If you are using the metric system, you should drive on the left. c) Irish drivers drive on the same side of the road as the British. d) The British say the Irish can t drive on the right.
